Here are a few things to ask when considering an chemical exposure in the workplace claim in Western Massachusetts or Northern Connecticut:

Who Is At Serious Risk For Exposure To Dangerous Chemicals?

Because many chemical-related illnesses can take a long time to fully develop, it is often difficult to pinpoint exactly when and where the victim was exposed to the deadly chemicals. There are, however, specific professions that have shown an increased risk of exposure to dangerous chemicals, including:

  • Plumbers
  • Carpenters
  • Electricians
  • Shipyard workers/longshoremen
  • Power plant workers
  • Automotive workers
  • Pipe fitters
  • Boiler mechanics
  • Roofers
  • Masons
  • Railroad workers
  • Demolition workers

Common defendants in chemical exposure lawsuits include:

  • Business owners/employers
  • Manufacturers of chemical products

What Can You Do About It?

Workers' compensation can be helpful in providing some money and benefits, but disability payments, especially in the long term, can be very minimal. In addition, workers' compensation does not cover pain and suffering or provide for damages in cases of employer negligence.
